HELLO FORKERS!

 Here is my Pooh dahlia, love it, quite tall. I have left it in the ground since 2013 and it has come up in the 2 summers since, bushier each time. It is a well drained bed.

I feel better as my sinuses don't ache nearly so much today. Have started making the sitting room curtains for our cottage in Norfolk. Hope to take them when we go next week, if there is room in the case.

Just having a mug of tea, thanks Clari!

Sorry about your toe, David. I know how it feels, I have a toe like that too, left one.

I am far too curious a person to click on an ignore button

You sound a lovely, caring person, punkdoc.

I'm sure I would notice David. But you don't post much on the Forkers chat thread and I think it's more noticed on that thread when people leave. I'm sure everyone posting on the camera or Sweet Pea threads would notice if you left.

I meant to say that before, Pottie Pam, about the horses in War and Peace, because Pat E said she didn't watch that sort of film because of the horses getting hurt.

The horses don't get hurt, it's a highly skilled business and the horses are valuable and very well trained. The Devil's Horsemen supplied horses for the War Horse film and Downton Abbey. The family have been riding all their lives and are very talented. The barbed wire in War Horse was made from string and plastic.

A lot of the horses are Spanish and Lusitanos from Portugal, beautiful and intelligent. My Hannah is Spanish/Lusitano and Lena is Lusitano, also very comfortable for the older rider!

Easier said than done, Dove. I'm retired but my paperwork is over a year behind with the sorting and filing.

Happy retirement GWRS, you will wonder how you ever had time to go to work!

Morning all. Happy holidays Hosta.

My cold turned into sinusitis and cheekbones were really hurting last night. Took decongestant and decon. nose spray at bedtime. In the early hours, better not tell you the gory details, it drained and am feeling heaps better!

There was a storm at 7am (OH said), it turned the electricity off, dog is bag of nerves and the ground is sodden, but I slept through it.

Haven't since Wintersong since Jo 47 left. Wintersong is a longstanding member, I'll miss her if she goes. I sent her a PM but no reply.

She hasn't posted since she was cross about Edd's photo of naked men.

She said "So that makes it okay then - 'the photos were just men' ......... this is a public forum where I don't expect to be faced with public nudity. I have asked for my details to be removed ........ I don't find it acceptable ........ "

I was the one who said the photos were just men, so hope it's not my fault if she's gone.

Garden visits in New Forest?

I think it should be Mottisfont, not Montisfont.  http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/mottisfont  The rose garden is lovely in June.
